Internet host requirements are specified by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Published online as RFCs (Requests for Comments), these requirements are designated as part of the STD (Standards) document series, and must be supported by any standards-compliant system connected to the Internet. Anyone involved in building or maintaining any system connected to the Internet, whether a server, a host, or an appliance, needs this essential information to learn exactly how to make it standards-compliant. Likewise, anyone supporting TCP/IP systems should turn to this volume for information on how their systems, servers, and networks, should behave.

This book compiles and organizes these essential documents in a single printed volume, adding an introduction and an extensive index. This means you no longer have to search through various RFCs in hopes of finding the answer to your host requirement question - all relevant standards are compiled here, with an extensive index that makes it easy to locate precisely the answer you need. If you buy one host requirement reference, this is the one to choose. Written by members of the IETF, this compilation is the most comprehensive and authoritative host requirement reference available.
